ArmInfo.School-aged children who have been diagnosed with coronavirus feel well and have no symptoms. RA Minister of Healthcare Arsen Torosyan announced this at a March 26 press conference, without specifying the exact number of Schoolchildren patients with COVID- 19 .
The Minister drew attention to the fact that today there is not a single publication or scientific work on a global scale that would speak about the severe course of coronavirus in children. A similar picture is observed in Armenia. Meanwhile, Torosyan noted that children with reduced immunity are more susceptible to infections, including coronavirus. In this regard, according to him, this group of children, especially those whose immunity is reduced due to chemotherapy, should be given special attention. In addition, we should not forget that children, like adults, can also become sources of the spread of infection.
In this regard, Torosyan once again urged everyone to follow the rules of personal hygiene and the recommendations of the Ministry of Healthcare, as well as limit their circle of contacts for an indefinite period.
